Scholarship Fund Established in Honor of SWOSU Student Killed in Car Accident


Friends and family have established a scholarship fund in the name of Aaron Custer of Elk City with the Southwestern Oklahoma State University Foundation in Weatherford.

Custer was one of two SWOSU students killed in a car accident on August 16, one day before Custer was starting his first semester of college. He was an incoming member of the SWOSU rodeo team.

Lynne Thurman, assistant to the president for institutional advancement at SWOSU, said individuals wanting to donate should make checks payable to the SWOSU Rodeo Team or SWOSU Foundation with a memo specifying Aaron Custer. The mailing address is SWOSU Foundation, 100 Campus Drive, Weatherford OK 73096. If an individual wants to use a credit card, call 580.774.3267.
